Barrett Made Architecture + Construction, a Portland-based company, announced that it has opened a Rangeley location to handle renovations and development at Saddleback Mountain and the region. 

The office, at 2525 Main St. in Rangeley, will serve as a center of operations for Barrett Made’s northwestern Maine team of nine people, it said in a news release Thursday. It plans to hire another 10 workers there. 

Saddleback Mountain reopened in December 2020, bolstered by new investors, after a 5-year hiatus during which the whole region’s economy waned with the resort idle.

“Establishing an office in Rangeley was a natural decision for us. It is an amazing place and with more people moving to the Rangeley area means they’ll need quality services to rely on for their architecture and construction needs. We are excited to be contributing members of the community and to create inspiring places for people to enjoy” says Rob Barrett, owner of Barrett Made.

Boston-based Arctaris Impact Fund LP is the lead investor, but the redevelopment has also gotten backing from the Finance Authority of Maine and CEI Capital Management. Overall, more than $26 million has been invested in the resort. 

For Saddleback, Barrett Made is handling:

  • Renovations to the existing base lodge
  • Development of a mid-mountain lodge
  • Residential development and an A-frame community
  • Staff housing and additional parking capacity

Outside of Saddleback Mountain, additional projects in the area include the architecture and construction for a new Main Street development consisting of a new mixed-use site with a cafe and coworking space, as well as several residential projects currently in the design and construction stages, the company said.
